Students spend time traveling over break

Turkey is the traditional centerpiece of Thanksgiving Dinner.

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what you have, and many people choose to spend it with their family.

When families are spread out over several different places, this means traveling.

“I’m going to Oklahoma with my parents,” junior Madison Lisman said. “We go there every other year. My family travels there because we have family down there.”

Junior Payton Selby said that her family goes to Dallas every year for Thanksgiving to see family.

Not everyone travels out of state, some chose to travel to more local places.

“I’m going to my grandma’s house in Hoxie,” sophomore Megan Flavin said. “We go every year because                            it’s one of the few times during the year that we have the whole family together. Our tradition is that we always play Phase 10 together every year.”

Not everyone travels to visit their family. Junior Alora Arnold said that Thanksgiving is being held at her house and her family is coming to visit them.

“It’s easier to stay home and relax,” junior Alexandria Hagerman said. “This year Thanksgiving is being hosted at our house, so my family is coming to us.”
